Take the Grow Kit, plastic bag and paperclip out of the box. Remove the lid of the Grow Kit (store the lid properly). Rinse the lid under running water. You will need it again later.
Slide the opening of the bag under the bottom with the micro perforation pointing upwards. The opening of the bag is now largely closed. You do not have to worry about air circulation.
From the moment you see the first small mushrooms (see photo), you can put the bag upright. Do not water. The first magic mushrooms will be visible after about 1 week.
NEVER place the grow kit in direct sunlight. Although mushrooms will grow at almost any temperature above 15 °C, 23 °C is the ideal temperature for an optimal harvest. Special heat mats are available to ensure this temperature and not have to heat the entire room.
Too much moisture is not good. Your first harvest will be about a week after the appearance of the first pellets. Make sure you harvest before the first spores begin to fall!
To do so, fill the kit with clean tap water after the first harvest. This process is known as cold shock. It breathes new life into the mycelium and ensures that enough moisture is present for the mushrooms to grow.
Let the kit rest for 12 hours. Open a corner of the lid and drain the excess water. From here you can follow the instructions from step 1 again. This process can be repeated several times.
